Press-Fit Connectors Raise Density Benchmarks

Meeting demands for high signal densities, the ZipLine connector system targets both backplane and orthogonal applications with speeds up to 12.5 Gb/s and up to 101 signal pairs per linear inch at a 1.5-mm column pitch. These figures set ZipLine as the market's highest density connector available with press-fit terminations. The system employs the company's AirMax VS technology and offers similar signal integrity performance. It provides 84.6 differential signal pairs in a six-pair version on a 1.8-mm column pitch, and can go to 101 signal pairs per inch at a 1.5-mm column pitch upon request. Available in both backplane and orthogonal configurations, the six-pair, 12 IMLA system offers 72 differential pairs that fit into a one-inch daughter card pitch. A three-pair, 8 IMLA version is also available and is compatible with a 15-mm card pitch. FCI USA INC., Etters, PA. (800) 237-2374.
